has really sunk. it is now at 43%. that is a little bit higher than president clinton in 1994. he had just had that health care disaster, that disaster over trying to pass health care legislation but you see a similar kind of landscape where people are unhappy with the party that is in power. tavis: to your points, as i recall, very well, clinton did in fact get his clock cleaned during those midterms and then yet, as you recall, after 1994 he didn't move to the center. he made that thing work for him. in the end, he came out on top and newt gingrich got kicked to curb. >> remember, he also got re-elected in 1996 by a big margin. you know, if the democrats do lose control of congress or the house in november, that is bad news in some ways for the obama white house but in some ways it may not be such bad news. president clinton's experience goes to both points.
